PH Navy to conduct comprehensive test of MPAC weapons

MANILA -- Once weather conditions have improved, the Philippine Navy (PN) will conduct a comprehensive test of the Spike-ER surface-to-surface missiles and machine gun systems equipping three of its newly-activated multi-purpose assault craft (MPACs), Department of National Defense (DND) spokesperson Arsenio Andolong said.

"The test will showcase, test, and affirm the missile-capability of the newly-equipped Boat Attack (BA) Mark III vessels and to inform the general populace and other stakeholders of the PN's new assets and capabilities," he added.

The Navy was supposed to test fire its Spike-ER missiles and other MPAC weaponry off Corregidor last July 17, 18, 24 and 26 but inclement weather conditions caused the postponement and rescheduling of the exercise to August.

Aside from the missile-armed boats, the PN will also deploy its AgustaWestland AW-109 attack helicopters which are armed with 2.75-inch rockets and .50 caliber machineguns to showcase the inter-operability of its air and surface assets.

Tentatively, the weapons test will be started by the AW-109 attack helicopters firing its machineguns at designated targets, followed by MPACs firing its guns, followed by another run, using the Spike-ER missiles.

Andolong said that Naval Task Force-Jerusalem was formed to supervise and monitor the above-mentioned exercise. The Spike-ER equipped MPACs are the Navy's Batch 3 MPACs which was constructed by the Subic-based Propmech Corporation and activated on May 22, 2017.

The Spike-ER system, which arrived in the country last April, is the PN's first missile weapon capable penetrating 1,000 mm (39 inches) of rolled homogeneous armor and having a range of eight kilometers.

    2. Dont worry bro marky, less equipment is just a minor disadvantage. More important is high moral and routine military exercise. Battle of marawi is a solid proof that philipine armed forces is strong enough and very resilience. Compare to difficulties that malon armed forces face in the war of sabah against a small group of insurgence. A small group that force malon armed forces use their F18 and precision guided bomb (what a such a over kill). It just like you kill a single mosquito with a hand granade..... LOL

    3. Sukhoi SU-35 yang akan didatangkan dari Rusia ini sudah memiliki persenjataan lengkap dengan nilai kontrak mencapai USD 1,140 juta.

      USD = 1,140 Million untuk 11 unit SU35
      alias harga per unit SU35 Indonesia adalah $ 104 Million

      Harga standar SU35 $ 45 Million - $ 65 Million per unit ---> Artinya selisih kurleb $ 50 Million perunit adalah persenjataan dan sparepart. CMIIW
